We are sorry about having televisionarchive.org being offline at the moment. The problems is technical not political.

The history is that one vendor built the old system, and the Internet Archive took over as a pro-bono host for it, but could nto support the old software. The Internet Archive is in the midst of redoing its website architecture (to be less db oriented and more xml oriented).

When this is showing signs of life, then the site will be revived.

So, again, we apologize.

Thanks. But when will that resumption be? It's been over a year (maybe two) already. Are these telecasts available anywhere else since it doesn't seem to be a priority at archive.org?

It's been 3 months since your reply; have there been any updates on the Television Archive? I think, as the rest of the people seem to feel, that this is a site that is worthwhile to have up.

This was a great resource (aside from the server problems) and I think archive.org should make it a priority to bring it back. If you have any clout with decision makers there, perhaps you could argue for a quick and simple solution. There's really no need for a big webby treatment of the video files. Just a directory listing with meaningful file names like 9-11_CBS_830-900_hres.mov would be fine. If archive.org insists on a fancy interface, maybe this simple directory listing approach can be made available while work proceeds. It would take the typical webmaster about an hour to set up.

Isn't there any way to access the television archive files of 9/11?
I'm working on an essay about that day, I'm going to discribe the way the media worldwide reacted to those attacks. I just can't find any full breaking news reports from that day!
I hope you can help me, I've been looking for almost a whole year!!!
